Photo Hunt- Metal: The Needle

Yes, someone gave some blood! So I took a picture as I thought this could be an entry for this week's theme, metal. Needle is made of metal, right?

They say that if you donate blood, your body system is somehow cleansed because the 450 ml of fluids taken out will be replaced by new one.

I experienced giving blood and it was a good feeling. The only thing I did not like was the inserting of that 3-4 inches needle and when it was being taken out. You would really take that deep breath even if you were not told to do so.

Red Cross slogan: Healthy People Donates Blood!

I have never donated blood, but my father and ex-husband did so a lot. Having blood drawn just for tests (like a really small test tube) makes me lightheaded. I know. Bad excuse. I just don't think I could do it. I've fainted before when they were inserting my IV needle for surgery! I'm just plain scared. And yes, needles are metal!

Happy Easter [or happy weekend, if you don't observe the holiday], and if you can, drop by for my metal interpretation!!! See if you can guess what it is.

That looks painful! i gave blood once, but my platelets dropped so much that I went to the doctors who told me I might need a blood transfusion! After I stopped laughing, i explained that I had recently donated blood and he advised me not to do it again :-(
